Personalised Christmas Stocking Filler Gifts
Christmas Trivia – The Origin of Christmas Stocking Fillers
The custom of hanging up a stocking on Christmas Eve, for Santa to fill with fruit and gifts, was started by St. Nicholas – the original Father Christmas. St. Nicholas was a real man, born in AD280 and he became the Bishop of Myna in Turkey. Legend suggests he inherited a lot of money following the death of his father and he would regularly give money and presents to local people. One year, at Xmas time, he threw a bag of gold coins down the chimney of a house that three poor girls were living in. The gold fell into a stocking that had been hung over the fire to dry and the girls found the present when they awoke the next morning. This was the beginning of the tradition of the Christmas stocking filler.
